The new-look southburnett.com.au was officially launched at the Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s April Meet’n’Greet last night.

Business owners Dafyd Martindale and Anne Miller spoke to an audience of more than 50 local business people at the South Burnett Enterprise Centre about plans for the new website.

Business coach Trudi Bartlett, from Headache to Heaven, also addressed the meeting, emphasising the importance of online marketing in the current business environment.

Recently elected (and Assistant Minister) Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington also spoke about the massive tasks ahead of the new LNP government, including slashing red tape and excessive legislation that impacts on small business.

She also said that with no disrespect to retired Independent MP Dorothy Pratt, she felt the South Burnett had been badly neglected by the former ALP government.

Mrs Frecklington said her door would “always be open” to local residents.
